DHSK celebrates World Health Day 2018

For his part, WHO's director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus insisted that health is a fundamental human right.

Over the past seven decades, since its foundation in 1948, WHO has spearheaded efforts to rid the world of killer diseases and fight against deadly habits, like tobacco use.

What World Health Day can do?

The theme of this year's World Health Day is: Universal health coverage: everyone, everywhere.

Experience has illustrated, time and again, that Universal Health Coverage is achieved when political will is strong.

World Health Day is a global health awareness day which is celebrated under the sponsorship of World Health Organisation (WHO).

Bhubaneswar: Chief minister Naveen Patnaik on Saturday launched a number of health initiatives to give a boost to the existing health care system in the state on the occasion of World Health Day. With a financial assistance of Rs 682 crore, we have initiated an universal eye health programme.

Universal health coverage has become a major goal for health reform in many countries and is a priority objective of the WHO.

The governor also called upon the people of the State to remain in their best of health and to inspire other to live a healthy life.

Alemu said: "All necessary preparations have already been done and am sure with the right resources put in place Nigeria will make progress in reaching UHC by 2030".

However, Guterres noted that people around the world still lack vital health services. WHO has calling on world leaders to ensure universal health coverage and commit to concrete steps to advance the health of all people.

World Health Day will shine a spotlight on the need for Universal Health Coverage (UHC) - and the advantages it can bring. World Health Organization and its partners will share examples of steps to take to get there through a series of events and conversations held at multiple levels.

"No one should have to choose between death and financial hardship".
